About this Event
Want to build a robot? Here is your chance to do it, with some help and in a group of similarly minded individuals. The Build More Robots Series consists of 4 sessions, each 2 hours long, held on consecutive Saturdays. The sessions will cover the assembly of the robot, basic Arduino programming, line following robots, and sumo robots. In the line following and sumo sessions, you will reconfigure your robot to accomplish line following and sumo robot functions. There may even be some friendly competition!
In this first session, you will need the items listed below. During the session we will build the robot together and learn about the different components of the robot while we build.
